A circular table has a diameter of 48". The table can be enlarged by inserting two rectangular leaves, each 18" wide and 48" long. What is the area of the expanded table?

Math 
Ms. Sue,
Table:
A = 3.14 * 24^2
A = 1808.64 square inches
Leaves:
A = 2(18 * 48)
A = 1728 square inches
Add the two areas together to find the total area.
